For my club, my community, my country, and my world.

HANDS stand for larger service, workforce preparedness, useful skills, science and technology literacy.
HEALTH stands for better living, healthy lifestyles.
4-H is a community of young people across the country who are learning leadership, citizenship and life skills. Our programs encourage kids to learn, explore, and discover. In 4-H, young people make new friends, develop new skills, and help shape their communities.
Since our organization's humble beginnings more than 100 years ago, 4-H has grown to become the nation’s largest youth development organization. Looking forward, 4-H will continue to develop new programs while never wavering from our motto to, "Make the Best Better."
4-H gives young people a chance to pursue their own interests - from photography to computers, to building rockets, and raising sheep. The choices are abundant, and all support the wellbeing of our youth. Dedicated 4-H members go places, quite literally, such as regional and national conferences, where they develop the skills to become strong leaders and engaged community members.
In 4-H clubs, members can also serve as officers, conducting meetings, managing funds, and facilitating group decision-making. 4-H members get involved in volunteer projects to protect the environment, mentor younger children and help those who are less fortunate.
